Since some days, no matter what project I use, godot just crashes my ARCH Linux right down to power off state after various time periods which are unpredictable and more short (some minutes) than long...

At first I thought there was something wrong with my project but no matter which project I choose it just happens anyway...

I tried using LTS kernel but the same behavior occurs...

I deleted all godot configurations from my user home directory, behavior is the same...

I created a new user but same thing, godot crashes like described above...

There is nothing reported in journalctl in the previous boot context.

If I start godot -v -d > godotlog.log there is nothing in that log besides expected output...(like engine version, which gles, etc...)...

Before this happened for the first time I could work perfectly well with godot versions since 3.0 up to 3.2.1 on this machine with no trouble at all...

Since ARCH is a rolling release distro I can not spot the update since when this strange behaviour occurred...

Everything else is working fine on this particular machine.

Any ideas / directions / thoughts on how to investigate further into this issue are highly appreciated.

I'm using Archlinux too, and I had some issues in the past after updating my packages. Here some examples:
https://github.com/godotengine/godot/issues/37499
https://github.com/godotengine/godot/issues/36226

Is your PC only crashing when using Godot?
Is it crashing when using the Editor or Running/Debugging a game?

Version 3.2.2 nearly finished. Maybe try that:
https://godotengine.org/article/release-candidate-godot-3-2-2-rc-2

Thank you for your thoughts...

I think the issue 37499 is not similar to this since it is specifically 3D related, this issue is not at all related to any specific graphical mode...

I think issue 36226 is not related ether since it refers MONO/C# issues which I do not use and as far as I understand need another binary...

Is your PC only crashing when using Godot?

Yes, otherwise it is perfectly stable...

Is it crashing when using the Editor or Running/Debugging a game?

As far as I checked this out it crashes when...

  • ...I use the editor for anything... (editing, creating something new, whatever, ...) ...
  • ...I run a game from the editor...

As soon as 3.2.2 stable is available I will give it a try for sure...

Anyways, if that won't fix the issue, the main question persists, how can one debug the editor to gather any information...???

THX and Cheers
